Pac Man (1981) (Atari)


Press the space bar to begin. Use the arrow keys to guide pac-man away from monsters and eat all the pellets (dashes) in the maze. The power pills in the corner will turn the ghosts temporarily blue. Yes, it is very hard to see that they're blue. When the maze is completely eaten, the game will move to the next level.

What is this?

The Internet Archive is now experimenting with in-browser emulators that allow you to try software in the archives. Based on the MESS emulation software, this JSMESS (Javascript MESS) player should run in most modern browsers and will map to most keys on your keyboard. Constant improvements are being done to the emulation software and this interface. For background information on JSMESS and answers to common questions, see our JSMESS FAQ.
